The nearly 200-year-old Rizal Park will get a facelift next year with energy-saving lamps and closed circuit TV cameras among its new fixtures.
Budget Secretary Butch Abad made the announcement as the country celebrated Rizal Day.
Abad said the government has allocated P150 million for the project. The fund will be used to replace over 700 lamp posts with solar-power LED lights.
Twenty-five security cameras will also be installed.
The National Parks Development Committee (NPDC) earlier said it looks to complete Luneta Park's facelift ahead of its 2016 deadline.
